An emerging feminist icon, ‘Control’ finds Lowe baring her soul as she explores a wealth of personal issues with devastating honesty. 'Who's That Girl' addresses the matter of some so-called friends who didn't help while she was hospitalized, and album track 'Nicole' is a plea for Rosie's best friend to leave a bad relationship.
The brutal realities of love and relationships are also a recurring theme. Recent single ‘Worry About Us’ tackles the complexities of trying to retain a relationship by someone who is plagued by insecurity; ‘I’ll Be Gone’ is an emotional plea to partner to remind her not to flee when the inevitably challenging times emerge; and ‘So Human’ underlines an acceptance that negative emotions are a vital part of the human experience. Yet as articulate and opinionated as Lowe is, she possesses a warmth and a sharp-wit that immediately allows strangers to feel like old pals.
